Elm Wildlife top again

Elm Wildlife Tours has again won the title of best tour in Dunedin through international travel website TripAdvisor.

It was ranked the best of 16 local tours through the website, which also named Otago Peninsula as Dunedin's top attraction out of 31 things to do in and around the city.

TripAdvisor was used by travellers who posted comments and photographs on the website and ranked places and experiences.

It featured 187 reviews of Otago Peninsula and 89 of Elm Wildlife Tours.

Otago Peninsula received a rating of 4.5 out of 5, and Elm Wildlife Tours 5 out of 5.

Also listed in the top 10 Dunedin attractions were Olveston, Dunedin Botanic Garden, Otago Museum, Dunedin Railway Station, Tunnel Beach, Hare Hill Horse Treks, Penguin Place, Speight's Brewery and Taieri Gorge Railway.

Elm Wildlife Tours operations manager Shaun Templeton said the company was pleased to receive the honour for the second consecutive year.

"Word of mouth plays a big part for us, so receiving this really adds to our profile," he said.

TripAdvisor sent the company a certificate of excellence with confirmation of the award.

Elm Wildlife Tours, which showcases a private reserve on Otago Peninsula, has been operating for 20 years.
